In an introduction to the present Catalogue it is a difficult task to convey to the reader an adequate idea of the importance of the Arab-Islamic culture area in the universal history of science. It is difficult, not only because only a modest part of the extant source material of manuscripts in Arabic, Persian and Turkish has been published and only a small portion analysed so far. There are various other reasons that render such an undertaking difficult. The reception and assimilation of...

Na Antiguidade Clássica os metais preciosos, como o ouro, foram intensamente extraídos, em consequência não só da generalização da moeda como referente económico, mas também com o objectivo de se acumularem tesouros, reservas a que se podia recorrer em situações extremas. O ouro também foi usado em artefactos dos mais diversos tipos, desde a joalharia à louça de mesa. Nos dois primeiros séculos do I milénio d.C. a Península Ibérica foi o principal abastecedor de ouro para o...

For 200 years, from the second half of the 6th century BC to the decades before 330 BC, the Persian dynasty of the Achaemenids ruled an enormous empire stretching from the Mediterranean to Afghanistanand India. The Great Kings Dareios I and Xerxes I even tried to conquer Greece and the northern Black Sea, but failed. Why were they interested in the Pontic area? In contrast to rich satrapies, such as Egypt, Phoenicia, and Syria, the Black Sea had no prosperous cities to offer. After 479 BC, the...

The lands between Mesoamerica and the Central Andes are famed for the rich diversity of ancient cultures that inhabited them. Throughout this vast region, from about AD 700 until the sixteenth-century Spanish invasion, a rich and varied tradition of goldworking was practiced. The amount of gold produced and worn by native inhabitants was so great that Columbus dubbed the last New World shores he sailed as Costa Rica—the “Rich Coast.” Despite the long-recognized importance of the region in...

Woolley & Wallis auction catalogur. Luís Esteves Fernandes (1897-1988) was a Lisbon diplomat who, in 1925, was appointed Third Secretary to the Portuguese Legation in Peking (Beijing). Six years in China gave the young man the chance to indulge a passion for Chinese culture - something that earned him the respect of members of both the Chinese intelligentsia and the antique dealers with whom he did business.

This diamond necklace with bowknot clasp is not only a remarkable jewel in itself, but its Russian royal provenance puts it in a class of its own. It evokes the blinding splendour of Catherine II, Empress of Russia: the magnificence of her court, her parks, her palaces, her art collections, and monuments. The most striking and colourful figure on the stage of European political life, for thirty four years she ruled a mighty empire which stretched from Siberia to Poland and left it stronger,...

The French Rothschild art collections and the wealth that fueled them began with Baron James Mayer de Rothschild (1792-1868), youngest of the five brothers known famously as the five “arrows” of the family. Founder of MM de Rothschild Frères in Paris, Baron James lived with his wife Betty in grand style at 19 rue Lafitte, although their most magnificent creation was the château de Ferrières, which he thoroughly updated in the family taste for the Renaissance style. In 1868 Baron Alphonse...

Samuel H. Kress Foundation amassed one of the most astonishing collections of European Old Master paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts ever assembled through the efforts of a private individual. Even more remarkable was the manner in which Kress would share his collection with the American people. Starting in the early 1930s, Kress began to divide his private collection among 90 institutions in 33 states. The largest single donation went to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.,...

Exposition créée au Musée du Malgré-Tout à Treignes (Belgique) du 6 mai au 11 novembre 2012. Le sujet étant particulièrement vaste, l’exposition se limite volontairement à l’Europe occidentale, des débuts du Paléolithique supérieur jusqu’à la période mérovingienne. On passe ainsi progressivement des parures en os, ivoire et coquillages aux bijoux en pierre, puis en métal et en verre ornés ou pas de pierres précieuses ou semi-précieuses, ou encore émaillées. La...

From his childhood in Cairo, Italian family life and French schooling, François Antonovich derived an insatiable curiosity which has influenced his vision as an antiquarian and collector. From 1970 he opened several galleries in Paris, and for nearly 50 years gathered furniture, sculpture, works of art, old master paintings and drawings, in the spirit of Kunstkammern or ‘cabinets of curiosities’. Mostly dating from the 16th and 17th centuries, the pieces show his taste for Renaissance...

O desenvolvimento do nosso trabalho em Silves precedeu o início, nos anos oitenta, de escavações arqueológicas sistemáticas e seguindo metodologias modernas, em particular no Sul de Portugal, integradas em projectos de investigação bem definidos em relação ao Período Muçulmano. Entre aqueles e a par do que decorreu em Silves, reconhecido como pioneiro, salienta-se o de Mértola, tendo ambos oferecido resultados inovadores, quer no campo científico, quer no didáctico e museológico,...
